My Mideast Punchlines: fly away pitta; come back pall

Ever wondered what it’s like to swoop over Dubai with a small jet engine strapped to your back? Now you can live the dream with the jetpackers Yves Rossy and Vince Reffet in their rather beautiful film (tinyurl.com/DubaiJetpackers). Warning: contains Frenchmen talking in a philosophical manner.

Small FistISIS has already taken note. They have ordered dozens of the jet-packs for use by the long queue of suicide bombers itching to spectacularly end up in a pall of smoke, and in so doing suitably impress the 72 virgins awaiting them in paradise. The thrum of a jet-pack clearly beats the hum of a Humvee any day.
